agreed, it will be a heavy load of Sproles. Bennett may be good for 3-6 touches, not even close to fantasy worthy. Also add to it that Sproles showed he could get it done full time last year with LTs injuries. Sproles, if he didn't earlier, has HUGE value now IMO. He is GOLDEN in my league cuz we also count Return yards, so a nice 3 category contributing player is always a plus there!


i dont see how a whopping 61 carries over 16 games is proof of "getting it done". OK he had 29 catches too. he averaged less than 6 touches a game! yet people seem to think he's going to come in touch the ball 20-25 times a game now :-?


This made me laugh. Thank you.

I know.....isn't it baffling? :-B



I generally agree that Sproles is unproven as an every down back, but I think people who think otherwise would point to his last game and two playoff games from last year when he handled that load pretty well. Now, whether his small frame could hold up for 16 games + playoffs is a tough question. I think it is unikely. That being said, I think LTs days of staying healthy for an entire season may be over too. Simply put, they need each other, as neither is a 320+ touch a year guy, IMO. The Chargers obviously believe in Sproles, as evident by their slapping a franchise tag on him and playing hardball with LT in contract talks. This could get real interesting if Sproles lights it up in LT's absence, but I doubt that will start this week against the Ravens.
Vengeance is mine.

(9:31) (Shotgun) P.Rivers pass short right to D.Sproles for 81 yards, TOUCHDOWN.

OooooooO i'll take that action as a Rivers owner. How I wish I would have taken Sproles as a handcuff this year or traded for him. With his big play ability he is going to be a force they have to go to now.

LT is probably crapping his pants. They cant go back to him... they just cant.
